* v tells, of the csmiag of the
Christ-child, and si the-meaning
of His coming to the vvcttdl
“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace, good will
toward men.” - •'
We are so familiar With that
story that perhaps we lose some
of its full significance. We can
hardly picture a world without
Christ and the Christmas story.
And yet it is only as we think
back to accounts of a world with
out Christmas that we can real
ize what ,the coming of Jesus
meant to the world.
Much has been said about the
materializing and the paganizing
of Christmas. It is true that for
many persons Christmas is mere
ly a joyous festival, with little
relation to the first Christmas or
Jhe Christ. "
But only those get the time joy
of Christmas whq celebrate it as
the birthday of the Babe who
came to manifest the divine in
the human, to live our earthly
life that He might bring us near
to God. - ~
- But no forgetfulness of God, or
violence of men, can wipe out th«
reality of the holy birth in Beth
lehem, or the glory that sur
rounded the manger there. ’
*- Within the next two weeks *ll
who will may journey across the
centuries to the outbuildings oi
an bumble inn. There, in the
company of the Wise Men and
the Shepherd?, they will lay the
treasures of their hearts before
the Babe—God’s.eternal gift. to
man. * T '
Will you be there?.
